Since the creation of the universe and this world most especially, GOD's invisible attributes have been clearly perceived by many people. Being understood through the things that were made, even his eternal power and GODhead, people are without excuse though they pretend not to understand. It's often sad to see that most humans live their lives according to the influence and dictates of their earthly material minds. In contrast to these ones are those who live according to the spirit, which brings life, joy, contentment, prosperity and eternal peace. The material or carnal mind is an enemy to the things of GOD and cannot please Him because it naturally doesn't subject itself to the laws of GOD. However, the spiritually minded easily follow GOD's laws and His Spirit bears witness with them that they are His children with whom He is well pleased.
In exercising our belief in GOD for anything we desire, we must always hope and keep on persevering while it hasn't yet come to pass. At times, while waiting on GOD, we might experience bad times or challenges that would make things appear like if they won't go well, but GOD exhorts us to stay firm, believing that all things will work together for good to them that love Him and have faith in Him. For those who believe, He had predestined eternal glory for them despite any evil that may currently present itself before the path of their journey through this earthly life. GOD owns and operates the universe, the earth inclusive. So do not be conformed to this world but be transformed to the precepts of GOD by renewing your mind to synchronize with His will.
Each soul has to subject themselves to every governing authority. For there are no justful authorities except from GOD. The authorities that exist, visible and invisible, are appointed by the Almighty GOD. Therefore, whoever lives against any authority resists the power of GOD, and brings judgement on themselves. As it ought to be, godly rulers do not terrorize good works but evil ones. If you don't want to have fear for any authority, do what is right and lawful, and you will obtain praise from the same. Godly rulers are GOD's ministers to you for good. However, if you do evil, be afraid because such rulers do not uphold justice in vain; for they'll execute wrath on people who practice evil and injustice. Therefore submit yourselves to any local authority, not because of fear for any wrath, but most especially for GOD's sake.
